New car parking charges

Free campus car parking is ending from Monday 10 October.

This means that  when you park on campus, you will need to pay a revised parking tariff using the new PayByPhone service where signs are displayed.

A tariff of £1 per hour applies between 7am and 12am; this is capped at a maximum charge of £1.50 for parking between 7am and 12pm and £1.50 between 12pm and 7pm. Therefore, the maximum daytime charge is £3 per day. This is a reduction of 50% on the standard maximum daily charge of £6 per day and will apply for the first six months. Blue Badge holders are exempt from payment of the tariff.

You still need to display your temporary ‘green hanger’ permit in the windscreen of your vehicle whenever you are parking on campus.

How to make a payment

Payment for campus parking with PayByPhone is made by phone, mobile app or web using a debit or credit card. Each main campus parking location has a PayByPhone location code that you will need to make payment. Pay & Display ticket machines are no longer in operation.

New signage is being/has been installed on campus that tells you where you can park and how to pay with PayByPhone.  Please follow the instructions and conditions displayed on these signs once they are in place.  As with other car parks if you breach parking conditions a Parking Charge Notice will be issued.

Park in a designated bay

An important part of the reinforcement will be that all cars must be parked in designated bays. Parking will no longer be accepted on access roads, in pedestrianised areas or on walkways, and/or if you have not made a payment for parking in locations where PayByPhone signage is displayed.
